STATE OF THE UNION
Why do we need a Holy Spirit Revival
in our Churches today?
I have been very burdened about the need for a great awakening! As I read the Revivals of the past, I am convinced that we could see Revival again. A hunger for God and His Word to rule our lives and give us the abundant life Jesus talks about John 10:10. I feel like the Thief is stealing and taking ground he has no business taking.
Don't take offense to what I have written just pray for pastor, evangelist, missionaries and our dear folks in the pews of our churches.
Colossians. 2:8,15,18,22. 3:1-2
We are losing ground, churches closing, churches that can’t get a pastor, Young preachers that want all the benefit but don’t want to live by faith. (Excuses: Well, the Lord has told me to take care of my family! - I thought the Lord does that. I guess if the ministry was easy we would be flooded with preachers. What about all the so-called preachers just sitting in a church and not fulfilling their calling.
Philosophy of Men vs Biblical Christianity
(What man thinks). (What God thinks)
1. The Lost are influencing Christianity
Atheism - The fool hath said in his heart there is no God. Ps 14:1
Agnostics - There may be a God but he has taken his hand of things
Humanist - We determine our own destiny. Scotland Lady
Critics of Christianity - They hate what the Christian stand for….
Abortion, Alcoholic beverages, Climate change, Dancing, Movies, Gambling
2. Professing Christians are influencing Christianity
False Doctrine - Cults, Churches that have a works salvation
Modernism - The Bible contains the word of God, but not all of it. PEN KNIFE
Compromise - We don’t need to stand against sins
Salvation - Lifestyle and or Confrontational Evangelism
Saying you believe it but don’t practice it
Tithing/offerings - Awe, that’s Old Testament
people are not sharing their faith (Testimony)
to those in need.
3. Churches are very fragile and even weak -
ICHABOD - The glory is departed. I Sam 4:21
Wanting it your way
No leadership - Pastor wont’t take a stand or if he does he will be replaced.
Because Churches Split or Were started in rebellion.
4. Lack of Pastors and Churches
Some cities with 100k people and no gospel witness.
Some churches have gone bad or closed where there was a witness.
5. No discipleship - Matthew 28:20
NO Training Center:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.
No teaching the principles of God’s Word so people know what they believe.
6. Reasons why Churches are not growing
Signs of the times - Excuses
Lazy Christianity- To busy
NO Missions emphasis,
NO Prayer meetings
Men & Women Prayer meetings
7. Church with a lack of Commitment
What happen to the Lord’s day?
Sunday AM is enough
Will not join
Won’t witness or doesn’t know how
Afraid to offend
Giving in to mediocrity -Awe, someone else will do it, I’ve never been called,
NO Tithing - some are so far in debt they don’t think they can. Mal 3:10 -
NO Missions giving
Pastor has to be Bi-Vocational because folks won’t give.
8. Missionaries not teaching their churches to be Indigenous.
Some are just pastors not missionaries - these are not third world countries
Lost their vision - killing time between Sundays
Blaming the culture
Will not help and assist other missionaries
Often critical of each other - especially if they are being out done.
Missionaries using other missionaries to build their work and not wanting
to send them out to start other churches.
We need a GREAT AWAKENING in our PULPITS and our PEWS!
Keep looking up
